Custom Food Magazine Design Artwork Tips

Firstly, you need to account for the spine thickness between the front cover and the back cover, when you start creating the cover artwork. Please let us know the size, inner pages amount and paper used for the interior pages and we will calculate the spine thickness for you. If you do not know how to create the cover with spine thickness, we can create a cover template for you and this service is for free. When you design the content on the spine, please make sure that the width of the logo or texts on the spine is shorter than the spine thickness by 2mm.

Secondly, if there are ads in your food magazine, please make sure that the ads page size are the same as your magazine size. Do not forget to add 3mm bleed on the ads pages on the top, bottom, left and right.

Finally, for A4 size magazines, the regular margin is 15mm. The page numbers should be kept on the cutting side or middle. Make sure that you do not design the page numbers on the binding side.


Custom Food Magazine Printing and Binding Tips

Firstly, we understand how important it is for a food magazine to be ecofriendly. Therefore, we print food magazines only with soy ink. Soy ink is also a great choice for showing various colors brightly after printing and it is also eco-friendly. We also can provide FSC paper for printing your food magazine. Our factory does not have a FSC certificate, but we can provide a wide variety of FSC papers for you to choose from. Some food magazines require a natural feel, so the best choice for such magazines is to use offset paper. It is also a good option if you do not want your printed colors to be too bright or shiny. Additionally it also has a natural and ecofriendly look, which further benefits your cause.

Secondly, in order to make the food magazine photos brighter, we suggest using gloss art paper for the magazine’s interior. In addition, we suggest using gloss lamination on the outside of the cover because it protects the cover well and also looks shiny.

Thirdly, if some pictures are strewn across two pages, we recommend opting for sewn and perfect binding. Sewing and perfect binding will allow your magazines to be opened flatly and a picture that has been crossed over two pages can be connected well.

Finally, we are a professional offset printer. Our MOQ is 100pcs. However, our recommendation is going for an order, which exceeds 500pcs, as it would prove to be more economical for you. If you print less than 100pcs, digital printing is a better choice. Offset printing is the best choice when printing in bulk.



For oversea printing, it takes more than 3 weeks for sea shipments from China to reach USA, Australia, Canada, etc. Therefore, if the magazine order is of a large quantity and it is a monthly magazine that you are printing, printing in China would not be a very wise choice. For orders that are of small quantity and the total weight is less than 200kg, DHL shipment or economy FedEx shipment can accommodate your distribution time.
